My vehicle is my livelihood… In-between two jobs, a slow pitch team, a dog (who is, by the way, the most adorable little pooch you have ever seen), grocery store runs, hellish Wal-Mart trips and beyond… I would be forever lost without those four-wheels.

In exchange for taking me everywhere I need to go, my vehicle doesn’t ask for much; just that I take it in for regular service appointments and frequent oil changes. And, I of course always do. However, it’s usually begrudgingly.

It’s not spending the money that bothers me. I love knowing my vehicle is getting the TLC it deserves. What bothers me the most is the time I feel I’m wasting while I sit there and wait for my vehicle. I think of all the things I could be doing instead of flipping through an eight-month old issue of People Magazine (news flash – I already know Brad and Angelina broke up).

That’s why I think the Lexus South Pointe Lux Spa is a brilliant idea. Who doesn’t love the idea of enjoying a manicure, pedicure or massage while their vehicle is being serviced? Instead of wasting time, you can treat yourself to some much-needed pampering.

Here’s what I think is even more brilliant – all Lexus clients are treated to one complimentary treatment while their vehicle is being serviced or repaired. Allow me to explain.

My Manicure at Lexus South Pointe

There are two types of manicures you can get at the Lexus South Pointe Lux Spa: The Maintenance Manicure (30 to 45 minutes) or the Repair Manicure (45 to 60 minutes).

The Maintenance Manicure is a dry manicure that includes nail trimming, shaping, and grooming of the cuticles. You also receive a moisturizing hand massage followed by regular polish or buff and shine.

The Repair Manicure is a bit more intensive. It includes a therapeutic oil hand soak, nail trimming and shaping, and an exfoliating hand scrub. Then, you enjoy a hot towel wrap and grooming of the cuticles. It’s then followed by a deep moisturizing hand massage and your choice of one of the following – gel polish, shellac, regular polish or buff and shine.

For my first visit to the Lux Spa, I decided to get a Maintenance Manicure with gel polish. My appointment was scheduled for 9:00 am. Crystal, the owner of Lux Spa was the one to greet me when I arrived. She welcomed me in and we sat down and began the appointment.

Having worked a few years in the service industry myself, I’ve always been a firm believer in ‘reading the room.’ That is to say, if you are dealing with a customer who isn’t interested in making chit chat, it’s important to recognize that immediately. Some people just enjoy the silence.

There are those, however, that love to chat – myself included. If you recognize that about a person, it’s always a nice idea to try and make sincere conversation. That being said, Crystal was absolutely wonderful to talk with. Not only was she polite, she was able to suggest a color for my nails that ended up looking incredible.

The chairs were comfortable, as was the beautiful couch clients sit on for pedicures. I could have easily curled up for a nap on it. The rest of the spa was clean and organized and I truly felt able to relax and enjoy myself for the whole experience.

Overall, Crystal and the Lux Spa were fantastic! My vehicle got the attention it deserved and I was able to treat myself to some well-earned pampering in the meantime.

See what I mean now? Brilliant!

Things to Remember:

  • Book your spa appointment the same day you book your service! While walk-ins are welcomed, the Lux Spa often books up days in advance.
  • Don’t forget…The first manicure or pedicure is on Lexus. If you want to really treat yourself and enjoy both, or a massage, you’ll still receive a VIP discount on the second service.
  • You don’t need to book a service to book an appointment. Crystal and her staff welcome all clients!
